Cheek and chin implant procedure
Enjoy greater facial symmetry and boost your self-confidence with a cheek or chin implant.
Chin augmentation involves the skillful insertion of an implant which can be customized to match your facial contours. Our surgeon expertly creates a discreet incision either beneath the chin’s natural crease or inside the mouth where the gum and lower lip meet. Through this incision, the implant is carefully placed, offering a natural look and feel. When the incision is made inside the mouth, there is no visible scarring, while an incision under the chin typically results in an imperceptible scar. For cheek implants, the incision is made inside the mouth, and the implant is secured over the cheekbone.
Cheek & Chin Implant Recovery
The recovery period for a cheek or chin implant is brief. Your surgical team will apply a dressing, which remains in place for two to three days. Some tenderness and discomfort are normal, but prescribed medications help manage any post-operative pain. Chewing may be limited for a few days, and a soft-food diet may be recommended. You may experience a stretched or tight sensation which gradually fades within a week. Most visible swelling should subside after approximately two weeks, allowing you to fully enjoy the remarkable results of your procedure. While strenuous activities should be avoided during the initial recovery phase, normal daily routines can typically resume around ten days.

During your consultation, Dr. Cohen will evaluate the elasticity of your skin to determine the most suitable procedure for your needs.
